WAL-MART FUCKING SUCKS
Not that my subject title is a news update but I just read an article published today which in part read:
"An internal memo sent to Wal-Mart's board of directors proposes numerous ways to hold down spending on health care and other benefits while seeking to minimize damage to the retailers reputation. Among the recommendations are hiring more part-time workers and discouraging unhealthy people from working at Wal-Mart.
In the memorandum, M. Susan Chambers, Wal-Mart's executive vice president for benefits, also recommends reducing 401(k) contributions and wooing younger, and presumably healthier, workers by offering education benefits. The memo voices concern that workers with seven years' seniority earn more than workers with one year's seniority, but are no more productive. "
What a great company. I have read and heard so many awful things about Wal-Mart and this just ads to the list. They are the equivalent of an unsupervised third world sweatshop that padlocks it's doors and makes seamstresses pee in bags underneath their desk to avoid taking time to use the restroom.
How much shittier can they treat their employees I mean seriously? People make, "an average of $17,500 a year and could face out-of-pocket expenses of $2,500 a year or more for health benefits"
All you conservatives out there who think this is bitching and moaning and that the world needs ditch diggers too, just try to imagine yourself living on your own on that salary. And don't even think about raising a family on that type of money.
I haven't bought anything from them in years and probably never will again. Fuck Wal-Mart.
